I was told I would soon be introduced to a man named Bob Schreck, who everyone talked about with a level of reverence. I knew in that case that he was an important name in comics, but as I wasn’t sure in what capacity, I chatted amiably with him after the screening and the next […]

The plane ride out to Indiana was pretty disasterous. Scott slept badly that night and so we found oursleves sleeping in the morning of Michael Stribling and Zareh Gorjian’s presentation. If Michael had a touch of shyness, Zareh far outpaced him. Although I didn’t get to spend much time talking to him, he was always […]


I hadn’t seem Michael Stribling‘s work before getting to know him in Indiana, but his gallery is worth visiting; it features all kinds of beautiful paintings and comics covers. This upcoming weekend will revolve around another meeting for Cartoonists Northwest, when we will once again be talking about the details for September’s Spawns of Insomnia. […]


As we waited for two guests from California to get off the plane, Durwin explained that we would recognize Michael Stribling because he looked like a rock star. That’s why I was surprised to meet up with Michael and find out that the closest thing to rocker about him is his surfer hair. Quiet, soft-spoken […]


We waited a bit longer at another terminal and were introduced to two artists that I will feature tomorrow. Durwin took off with us in a sinister black van and we climbed out again at the campus hotel, with the instructions to meet up again at Chancellor’s, the hotel restaurant, in an hour.

When Brian Ludwick, friend since Primal Screen and now a professor at Indiana University, called us up last summer and asked us if we would be interested in speaking at this year’s VisionFest, I accepted mainly because it was a chance to visit him […]


What an incredible weekend! We put together a nice presentation for the students and judged a 2D animation competition that included a lot of talent. I got to spend a lot of time with some friends I don’t get to see often enough, author Durwin Talon and the incomparable Brian Ludwick. But I also got […]


On Brian Basset’s advice, we’re trying out producing the originals at a smaller size. Within hours I’ll be on the plane to Indiana to speak at Indiana University’s VisionFest student animation festival. Getting the chance to meet John Canemaker would be honor enough, and getting the chance to speak in the same series of lectures […]


We spent Friday afternoon having a frank conversation with syndicated cartoonist Brian Basset (Red and Rover, Adam@Home) about getting into the newspapers. Brian has a cozy studio that swelters in the summer heat where he works over an art desk covered in materials and upcoming comics. Some of the most interesting advice concerned clarifying background […]
